Loved ones remember Meghan Marohn as ‘deeply caring and dynamic’

The people who knew and loved Meghan Marohn are mourning her loss. The Berkshire district attorney announced Friday that remains believed to be those of Marohn were found by a civilian near where she went missing on March 27.

Marohn’s brother, Peter Naple, tells NewsChannel 13 the last five months have been sad, but somewhat hopeful. He said Friday, her family is just sad.

He said he wanted to share “what a deeply caring and dynamic individual Meghan was, and how much her family will miss her.”

Caring and dynamic is the way many people are remembering Marohn — including people who knew her from her work with the Sanctuary for Independent Media, using arts, science and education to fight for social justice.

Professor Branda Williams of the Sanctuary for Independent Media says Marohn’s passion was the environment.

“She was pulled into the environment and felt deeply the trauma that our planet is going through, so at the core, I think what was most important to her, and she was such a curious person, but at the core would be environmental justice and climate change,” Williams shared.

Williams called Marohn a “brilliant teacher” who challenged her students to think independently and creatively.
